Update to earning on flights

Starting July 11, 2024, we’re updating the way you earn AAdvantage® miles and Loyalty Points on flights depending on where you book. Learn which flights earn miles and Loyalty Points and which do not.

Our partnership with Iberia

Iberia is the flagship airline of Spain and a leading carrier between Europe and Latin America. When you fly on Iberia, you can earn and redeem AAdvantage® miles, plus, enjoy the benefits of your AAdvantage® status.

Earn miles

You can earn AAdvantage® miles when you fly on Iberia marketed and operated flights and Iberia codeshare flights operated by Iberia affiliate airlines Air Nostrum or Iberia Express, or other oneworld® carriers.

Here's how:

  • Buy an eligible published fare ticket in an eligible booking code
  • Fly an eligible route

When you earn eligible AAdvantage® miles for travel on Iberia, you’ll also earn Loyalty Points that count toward qualifying for AAdvantage® status.

The number of miles you earn depends on the flight distance and the fare class of your ticket. For travel starting October 18, 2023, you will earn miles based on the ticket price.

Calculating miles based on ticket price

For travel on Iberia marketed flights, miles are earned based on ticket price (includes base fare plus carrier-imposed fees; excludes government-imposed taxes and fees). The more you spend, and the higher your AAdvantage® status, the more you'll earn.

  • AAdvantage® member – 5 miles for every U.S. dollar*
  • AAdvantage Gold® member – 40% bonus*
  • AAdvantage Platinum® member – 60% bonus*
  • AAdvantage Platinum Pro® member – 80% bonus*
  • AAdvantage Executive Platinum® member – 120% bonus*

*Basic Economy tickets issued on or after January 1, 2023, for travel starting March 1, 2023 will earn award miles at a rate of 2 miles per dollar in addition to Loyalty Points. Status members' bonus percentages will apply to the base mileage rate of 2 miles per dollar on American and other select partner airlines.
